Still, after all these years, the mounds are safe places to build … away from the ever present threat of floodwaters.
This site is also in Transylvania, near the ancient burial mound. The top was modified to allow construction of the metal barn. The structure looks completely out of place – a prefabricated building on a hill built by hand. At least the name “Quonset” is Native American, probably meaning “small, long place”. At least there’s that.
I wonder what will remain in 100 years … the barn? The rusting farm equipment? The mound? Do the ancient spirits linger, buried far beneath the reach of plows and progress?
